About ten days ago Army Lt. Col Alexander Vindman was escorted off the White House grounds and dismissed from the National Security Council. His twin brother Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, who served as a lawyer on the NSC was also fired and left with Alex.
But President Trump is not done yet. There are reports that dozens more may be removed this week.
Top Trump administration officials are in discussions to reassign deputy national security adviser Victoria Coates to the Department of Energy from the National Security Council, per two sources familiar with the planning.
The possible move comes just weeks after Coates was accused of being behind the Times article, ‘I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,’ that was published in September 2018, as well as a book titled, A Warning, that was released in November 2019.
Sources claimed that Coates had begun to fear for her job despite being recently promoted by national security adviser Robert O’Brien.
Earlier this month, book agents for A Warning denied rumors that Coates is Anonymous.
‘To be very clear so there is no chance of any misunderstanding: Dr Coates is not Anonymous,’ Matt Latimer, the co-founder of literary agency Javelin, told Politico.
‘She does not know who Anonymous is. We have never discussed Anonymous or the book, A Warning, with her prior to its publication. She did not write it, edit it, see it in advance, know anything about it, or as far as we know ever read it,’ he said in a statement.
Coates’ potential reassignment comes as Trump, fresh from acquittal in his impeachment trial, institutes personnel moves to bring early loyalists back into the White House and tests purges of staff he considers disloyal throughout the federal government.
